|Carla rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This is Riverview's first syrah. It is a beautifully intense wine. Rich in deep, dark fruits and a dry coffee mouthfeel with a weight of 14.5%.
"A powerful Syrah. Toasted vanilla, ripe currants, pepper and espresso bean grace the nose and continue on a medium-full palate of lush blueberries and stewed plums. Scrumptious with bacon and cheddar burgers." (Riverview tasting notes)
"This is Riverview’s first Syrah, all from sourced fruit, and it’s a beauty. The nose is rife in peppery-smoky notes with currants, licorice, earthy-meaty bits, toast, spice and red fruits. Very rich with a lovely blueberry note over top the smoke and cracked pepper with a fair amount of length through the finish." - 91 points, Rick VanSickle, Wines in Niagara
